Your 10 favorite Larry....

When I listen to a song, I sometimes focus on listening to one particular instument. Sometimes I will just listen to the bass, while other times just the guitar. Well, I've come up with a list of songs where the drums just stand out. I find that the drums are much more prominent in early U2 and that's probably why my list has lots of songs from Boy and War.

Anyways..... list the Larry beats that just make you......... well you know.....

Here are mine in no particular order:

1)A Day Without Me
2)I Threw a Brick Through a Window
3)Mysterious Ways
4)I Will Follow
5)Out Of Control
7)Stories For Boys
9)Sunday Bloody Sunday
11)Streets (Ok, so I put 11... oh well)

I wish there were more songs now that had more of a Larry (I mean drum) focus.... I can hope, can't I?

Oh great ocean
Oh great sea
Run to the ocean
Run to the sea

I do the same thing CantSeeOrBeSeen!! This is a cool thread. I'm a drummer also and I've tried many of his parts-they're pretty complicated!

3)Bullet the Blue Sky
4)The Unforgettable Fire
5) Trip Through Your Wires
6) If You Wear That Velvet Dress
8) Mysterious Ways
9) Zoo Station
10)Beautiful Day

Yay! I love all of the songs of course though.

I do that too! My list doesn't reach 10, but here it is anyway...

1. Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
2. Bullet the Blue Sky (don't you just love how Larry's shoulders go up and down when playing this one?)
3. SBS
4. I Will Follow
5. With or Without (esp. the version in the R&H video)
6. Angel of Harlem

I don't have 10, or even 5 for that matter...but my all time favorite Larry song is Sunday Bloody Sunday! That snare and those violins make me want to scream

I'm in a bit of a hurry... so I can list only one right now....

this particular song actually caused me to drive right past the exit to a freeway I needed to take to get to my friend's house on New Year's Eve... I was so into this song...

*REFUGEE* Whoo hot! His drumming is awesome on this song.... on the whole album for that matter.


If you ask me, I think it's all about drums.
"If a student with an accordion had come along, I would've played with them ya know...that was where I was at, I was that desperate to play with somebody."
(Larry, about his Mount Temple days, before forming U2)

*Larry, I played accordion. Can I have a drumstick?*
